Light-bulbSnag Bar issue: asking for permissions all the time?

Please_share
by Chao Lam - Jan 18, 2011 Star_s37,273 views

Update (03/16/1 @ 5:20 PM CT): This thread has been update - please go to this thread for a workaround.

From the reporting and screen sharing of several GU! members, we know there are snag bar users who are being asked for permissions all the time. At the same, these same users cannot access the game feeds too.

We're still investigating, but what we do know is that it's happening sporadically and only for a few users. In fact, the same browser/snag bar works on one Facebook account and not the other.

We've narrowed the issue down to errors returned when Facebook API calls. We believe it's a facebook bug and have reported it. Facebook has generally been good at fixing bugs. We had a similar issue in August, and they fixed it within 4 days. Facebook does not like us to publicize the bug, but I can say it's similar to a bug they fixed half a year ago.

We will let you know as we learn more. We'll also look into better messaging to let you know if you face this issue.

Thanks for your patience and thank you to all the GU! members who have been kind enough to help us understand this problem better.

If folks have this problem, and have figured out a work-around, please share them on this thread. Maybe together we can figure out a way to work around this issue!

This just in from a hepful member: if you get this error try logging in via

https://login.facebook.com

(note the "S" after http)

Then, try the snag bar again. Let me know if this works for you. If it works well, we'll next try to handle this error a little more smoothly.

We've added more explicit messaging to show this error when we detect it:

permissions error

The problem isn't fixed, but at least we can identify the problem when it occurs. Let us know if you have the problem and whether you see this new messaging (we don't see the problem, so we can't test it).

I have a sneaking suspicion this is something in place by Z/FB, as it "Mysterously" does this every day during peak hours.

Ironic? I think not. Deliberate.

There is more too it than FB issue...It happens all the time now...none of your solutions are working...I noticed however that if you use the 1-Click Gifts from your menu bar that is when I usually get the "OOPS Error 8...then I usually have to restart my computer and it's is okay for a while then the same things happens again...
